Postcards 2020 Wrightsville Beach, NC: Framed

Okay, so I am going to try something really weird this year. This year in 2020 I am going to highlight only postcards from one place. I have collected postcards from Wrightsville Beach, NC ever since I lived there in the 1980's. So I have a huge box of Wrightsville Beach postcards and even last year, I started trying to get some more recent postcards of this town. Which turned out to be surprisingly difficult. For several reasons, number one, postcards are just not that popular anymore, so folks are less likely to create them and/or sell them. Number two, it seems like Wrightsville Beach does not want to promote itself as a vacation destination anymore. They are basically saying, we have enough people who come here already, so you really do not need to know anything more about us!!  So anyway, 2020 will the the year of Wrightsville Beach. I will start off with this example of how I took postcards and framed them to put on my wall.

You might see some of these cards again in later posts, because I often do have multiples of certain scenes (I really love those antique night scene cards)
